5 Ways to Improve Your Front Door Security, West Chester, Ohio

As your first point of contact with the outside world, your front door deserves extra security. To make break-ins as difficult as possible for a would-be intruder, professional locksmiths recommend taking certain steps. Preventing crime on your property can be as easy as following these five tips.

5 Ways to Decrease Your Chance of a Break-In

Invest in Bright Outdoor Lighting

A criminal’s illicit activities are especially likely to be witnessed in well-lit areas, so thieves are more likely to bypass your home if you have a bright porch light, which would highlight their illegal activities.

Buy a Surveillance System

Proper lighting illuminates your door area, but if you want to keep tabs on everyone who approaches your front door, install a security camera. Many systems easily integrate with mobile devices, allowing you to monitor your home no matter where you are.

Upgrade Your Front Locks

Install a Stronger Door

Locks are important, but they mean little if your door could be broken down. Look for exterior doors with solid iron or steel cores, which are difficult to drill into or break.

Protect Your Windows

Maybe your front door itself is secure, but what about the windows next to it? If you’re concerned about someone breaking through the glass, consider installing metal bars over them for heavy-duty protection. If you find that idea unsightly, though, you could also use clear security film, which makes windows harder to shatter.
